Captain Jamie and his crew Ethan, were very knowledgeable, helpful, and charismatic. I was lucky enough to find a Megalodon tooth on my 1st dive, a feeling that can't be described. Thanks Joe

Captain Jamie is a great guy and Captain. He really knows his stuff when it comes to diving. If you want to dive for fossils or sport dive one of many reefs or wrecks then Aristacat charters is the choice to make!!

This was a great dive charter looking for fossils. Jamie the Captian was the best. I will not use anyone else.

I get to Florida about twice a year and love to go fossil hunting. For the past number of years I've been diving with Captain James on Aristakat charters. I have always had a great time. He makes it a fun and safe experience and knows where the hot spots are. I always come out with a plethora of fossils.... More

Jamie and crew were fantastic! They took great care of us, especially my 12 year old grandson. Jamie buddied up with him for the first dive and literally held his hand through most of the dive. He made sure Aaron saw everything. It was a great trip and we plan on coming back again.

Awesome day diving Venice in search of fossils. Capt. Jamie and crew mate Chris are top notch. If you want to dive Venice for fossils do it on the Aristakat.

Capt. Jamie is a true local Fla native with a wealth of knowledge on diving, boating and local area information. We loved spending time on his boat. With an eye for safety first, anyone is sure to have a great time hanging out on the Aristo-Kat with Jamie and crew. Very accommodating, welcoming and easy to be around for anyone... More

Great dives today with Captain Jamie and crew, laid back and easy going. Both dives an hour to hour and half, easy dives for anyone looking to get wet with some awesome finds!
